How many of you fine folks have enabled the "Patrol" link in your profile?  
How do you use it?
What do you look for?
I imagine some of you (LoyceV?) have some script you use to scan the posts for plagiarism and spam.

In the last couple of days I've spent a little time going through the newbie posts and have reported a couple.  But it's slow going that way, and my eyes start burning after so many quoted bounty replies.

Any suggestions for making it more useful would be appreciated.

3  Economy / Scam Accusations / [SCAM] MetaMask Android App on Google Play Store on: September 04, 2018, 07:01:07 PM
This weekend I wanted to buy a CryptoKitty (so cute) so I went to check on one of my MetaMask accounts, and it's been depleted!  No transaction evidence in my wallet, but Etherscan shows the transaction, of course.  I only lost 0.021 ETH, so the kids aren't gonna starve, but I don't want this scammer getting away with anyone else's money.  He already has 40 ETH in his wallet.

Retracing my steps I've concluded this is due to my attempting to use the MetaMask android app.  I know, I know, there isn't one.  But I found one on the Play Store a few weeks ago, and I must have been drinking because I wasn't as skeptical and careful as I usually am.  The piddly rinky-dink "token ransom" wallet was the only one I tried to set up on that app, and it's the only one that was compromised.

Be Safe!

If there is a liquid water lake on Mars it's likely to be as salty as the dead sea.  If so, the chances of finding life are very slim, but I'm going by what's normal here on earth.  Do you think life could exist on Mars?

Account dealers are slime balls.  Odds are they're scammers with nothing to actually sell.  The ones who do sell real accounts are only facilitating and exacerbating the issues this forum has developed; scammers and spammers.  The only reason anyone would want to buy an account is to scam people or spam the forum.  If we want the place cleaned up, we'll need to step up, take ownership, and help out.

Here are a few dealers without red trust that I found on the first two pages of the "invites and accounts" sub alone.  I'll keep adding them as I find them.

There's a thread in the altcoin mining section claiming to be a new version of a very popular ETH miner.  However, this announcement doesn't fit the typical format of every previous announcement the real developer has made.

Furthermore, since I've been using this miner myself I have been keeping up on it's development.  The next major release (i.e. from 3.0c to 3.1x) will include features the scammer didn't bother pretending to include.

I don't know that I want to be a merit source, but as a newbie I've found these posts very helpful.  The forum is so busy and has so many posts in such a short time I can see why some very helpful posts get overlooked.  If you're a source and you have a bit of time, please reward these folks who've been kind to this lowly newb.


Be careful with such deals. Credit cards are charged on monthly subscription. Even though OP's service will be a one time payment, there is no guarantee he wouldn't generate a huge bill for the next billing cycle which may result in card getting charged the next month.Also the card details will be saved on the profile which I suppose can also be easy to unauthorised access.

I wouldn't recommend anyone doing this just for a couple of bucks.


I wouldn't trust a newbie to run anything on my own machine. you could actually rent a machine in the cloud
To run your script. Friendly warning for greedy members don't do it because OP could do it himself for less than $10.


Good day everyone!

It's been a great day for me and so I would like to share my strategy on how to get a free followers that is related to cryptocurrency or to any targeted participants so everyone will be having a great day just like mine. I don't know if someone already make or create a this but I'm hoping that I'm allowed to do this.

So let's stop this introduction and let's continue with the tutorial.

I've been in twitter industry for a long time at first it was just a hobby and after some time I've become an entrepreneur where in I create a twitter account for a business and find a targeted and real participants and
selling it to different businessmen that is related to what that account is all about or selling post, etc.

So let's proceed:

1. Create a twitter account and make sure that all the infos are related to the targeted participants (In this tutorial we're going to use cryptocurrency related account) you can also use your existing account but just like what I've said your account might be at risk.

Create a proper icon pic, header and bios.

2. After creating an account find and follow big and active accounts (What I'm referring about active is making always making tweets.) for example Bitcoin News we all know that this account is related to cryptos, active and lastly most of the followers of this account are crypto related.

3. Wait for the account you've followed to tweet and  make sure that it was a fresh tweet probably a post within 20 mins. and if you're going to look at that tweet there's someone who retweeted, like and comment on it.

4. Follow all those users, why? Because most of them for surely are cryptorelated users, second they're active at that time meaning there's a chance that they will see that you followed them and there's a chance that they will going to follow you back.

You can also go to the "Followers" and follow them all.

This is called mass following but BEWARE!!! make sure the you confirm phone number as well as email because when you're doing mass follow the twitter will going to detect it and will suspend your account but in able to recover your account you just need to verify it through phone number and they will ask you to do recaptcha to know if you're a real human.

The maximum follow you can do per day is 1000.

5. After that you are able to get targeted followers (It may not be 100% targeted participants but 1 thing is for sure most of them are real users so if you're going to do a twitter audit you will see that the number of fake followers are just minimal.) and done!

• Let's say you've followed 3000 followers in 3 days after 3-5 days you can unfollow those users who didn't follow you.
• You can use this app to do automatic following and unfollowing Mass Follow
• Don't forget to do quality posts, etc. to engaged followers. Also make something that will follow you for example doing a raffles, etc.
• Make your profile and bios professional so many people will going to follow you.

This strategy is a little bit risky. Your account may be banned by twitter or suspend your account. I'm not responsible for this, do this at your own risk.

Also this will not work for a week, you need to be patient in order to get followers if you want easy one just buy followers from internet there's a lot of services offering that but we can't guarantee that the followers they will give is your targeted users.


more social drama to cause community to ruin bitcoin security by changing the mining algo... (facepalm)

funny part is to achieve changing the algo. core would need to do yet another 35% mandatory attack, threatening the network with IP bans and block rejections.. oh but there will be baseball caps available again. (facepalm)

remember this though folks.
one positive lesson about the august 2017 mandatory split.
if blocks dont fit the rules of the network it doesnt matter what they produce, they will get rejected.

the fear is not that a pool can just magic money up 50 billion bitcoins simply by having enough hashrate. their blocks will gt rejjected in 2 seconds no matter what the hashrate is.

the only thing that will happen is that if a pool with large majority does something that does not fit the rules. then the blocks get rejected and the only result is slower block solutions frrom the remaining pools.

changing the algo is DEFINETLY going to cause not only a risk to security but also delays in block solutions from all pools because ALL pools use the same algo.

so a change in algo affects EVERY POOL and will delay EVERY BLOCK
dont let yourself get fed into the fud of what pools can do to blocks(data). and realise the blocks would get rejected if they try..
wise up to the reality that if the network(CODE) changes. it affects everyone


Followed all instructions on the XMR-stak github to compile.... kinda.  Notes are below.

Compiled using Cuda 9.1.  
DevFee set to zero.  
Build version number stayed the same, build name was changed (added -JK).  
No major modifications aside from "built by notes", and changing the donate address to '' for quick timeouts if there is any code trickery I did not catch.

No donations or whatever required.  Just enjoy.  I know a bunch of you (like me) would like the zero devfee build, but either can't or are too lazy to compile it yourself.   Here you go you lazy ones Wink  If you do feel like taking the time to donate, you can find the donation address in the "miner batch" post that is linked in my signature.

I plan to slowly try and incorporate as many different free miner sources into one set of apps for my mminer batch.   If I can get them all into one project/solution, then I may do a version that does away with the batch altogether.

For now;  I was unable to find a --flag for devfee==0, so I wentt to my main network hub where my VPN is; and finally downloaded the compilers and build tools to build the source myself.  Would have taken ages from my cellular link at home.

***I literally cut/paste the source and built it 100% as per instruction aside from the edits mentioned above.***

MS Visual C++ Runtime:
Download vcredist here

Current Version:
Download XMR-Stak-2.4.4-JK here

Previous versions:
Download XMR-Stak-2.4.2-JK here

If you are getting slower hashrates on older cards, try these DLL files.  They are from a different release of xmr-stak, thus not compiled by me.  But, another user has reported that replacing the DLL's with these has increased performance.  Your mileage may vary:!oGY0iIxa!X1tlll_HR5LWTa1aT3jBQIZAR3Bv91_Bgll8huVl84w

2018-06-03: Compiled and uploaded 2.4.4
2018-05-30: Added vc redistributable install link
2018-05-29: Compiled and uploaded 2.4.3/quickly removed partially built binary
2018-04-10: Alternate .dll files from original dev's older release available, download link added.  May give better or worse hashrates.
2018-04-06: Fixed issue with not launching properly.  Added original usage docs from source.

Just run xmr-stak.exe and fill out the questions.  from there after, just run xmr-stak.exe and theres no need to put any commands after.
See my below replies for notes on disabling CPU and GPU's individually.  I can help if you need assistance with your configuration.

Please see all of the build and usage notes on the original github: By clicking here.

If you are looking for XTL-stak, that's right here.


Sorry if this is rude to post here in the thread of someone with a devfee miner...

but why do all you people use a devfee miner? I use ethminer 0.15.0rc1 from for a few days which has no devfee at all.

I'm using 6 x 1070s and 2 x 1080 (with OhGodAnETHlargementPill) and 270-280mh/s on Nanopool. That's average of around 32.4mh/s for each 1070 and around 34mh/s for each 1080. Do you do better than that with Claymore or Phoenixminer?

That's not impressive, I reach almost 31,5MH/s with 2 of my RX 570s on Phoenix, and they are at least 50% than a 1070.

1080 with pill should be around 50MH/s. We've seen reports of this kind of pseed with ETH pill & Phoenix.

I don't think you earn more on ethminer rather than with Phoenix and its 0,65% devfee. You could buy a sub 15$ win 10 licence and compare.
I never got good results for Rx570 and phoenix. Can you share your settings?

GPU1: 1180 core (850mV) / 2130 mem (860mV) gigabyte Gaming with samsung mem. Usually 31-31,4 MH/s. Higher frequencies because it's my display GPU and I use the PC while mining
GPU2: 1140 (825mV) / 2090 (880mV), Sapphire ITX, Elpida/Hynix mem. Usually 31,2-31,5 MH/s
GPU3 (weak ASIC): 1130 (875mV) / 2035 (880mV) MSI Gaming Elpida/Hynix mem. Usually 29,5-29,8 MH/s
All cards are bios modded.

Phoenix 2.9C, AMD 18.5.1 drivers with annoying win 10 X64 build 1803.

---------, a Cayman-based Blockchain Startup is funding, its blockchain platform through the process of Initial Coin Offering (ICO). The multibillion-dollar fundraising effort is speculated to be more than double of the second biggest offering of this type.

The investors have been backing the project solely at the back of the hype that the ICO has created and at the back of the expectation that the founders, who have run a series of other Blockchain projects can repeat the success story again.

In their ICO, is launching their cryptocurrency known as EOS.
ICO Participants will be using cryptocurrency ether in place of the Dollars in exchange of the new EOS tokens.
According to the Token Report, which is the division of New Alchemy, the Blockchain Advisory Firm, fundraising of EOS has already brought 7.12 million funds in ether value.
When the amount they had raised – $576 per ether – was converted according to the US Dollar exchange rate, it came out to be equal to $4.1 Billion.

Once the system is launched, it is expected to give support for the efficient operation of decentralized applications, which is even more than what Ethereum offers. If becomes successful, the industry believes that it would bring greater adoption of the cryptocurrency-based technology.

Validating the expectations that will make decentralized application operation more efficient, the ICO is being backed by 10 ICO fundraisers including –

Telegram Open Network – $1.7 Billion
HDac – $258 Million
Dragon Coin – $320 Million

About EOS

EOS is the blockchain technology that functions like Ethereum, which gives a platform for Blockchain App Development. It was brought into existence in 2016 by the founder of BitShares and Steem, Dan Larrimer.

Here is the list of features that EOS comes with –

A Constitution – It has a set of rules that everyone in the blockchain agrees on which are linked with every block that is mined.
Parallel Processing – It comes with the ability to complete things in parallel, at a much faster transaction speed, and with lot more scalability
Decentralized Operating System – Developers can easily build blockchain apps on EOS.

A question for those who have experience mining ETH with Radeon Cards:

I don't have a lot of experience with AMD chipset cards, but I'm thinking of adding a couple of RX 580s to my ETH machine.  I've narrowed my search down to the Sapphire Pulse, or the Sapphire Nitro+ (8gb cards.)  Which would you choose?  Any recommendations for bios settings and how to flash the bios for a first timer would be really appreciated.

I would choose Sapphire Nitro+ because I have heared from almost everyone who is in mining that this is the greatest card with greatest fan engine + hashrate when you overclock it.
You can see this for example or just google information you are looking for but this website is truly amazing for mining reviews and etc. Here is article about sapphire nitro:


now that ETH is going to go PoS you are going to add more cards to the network with the hashrate skyrocketing??? OMG.......... people are just Fu---cking up this.

I don't understand, does this mean mining with a GPU will be more difficult soon?

Ethereum is going to Proof-of-Stake (PoS) from Proof-of-Work (PoW). No official date has been announced yet; it'll probably be the first quarter of next year.

Mining difficulty has been constantly rising for Ethereum (see the graph here); once it goes PoS, it'll be somewhat a trouble for GPU miners as then they won't be able to mine Ethereum. Still, once it goes PoS, you'll have many other coins (using mine-able algorithms like ethash, cryptonight, equihash, etc) to mine. However, imagine all this hash switching from Ethereum to other GPU-friendly coins, it'd definitely create a huge difficulty increase in those coins and it'd be quite interesting to see how the market reacts after that.


Both the Sapphire Pulse and Nitro+ are great mining cards. The difference is the Nitro+ has a better heatsink, runs cooler and a dual bios switch. I've had very good results with the Polaris Bios Editor 'one click timing patch' timings.

PBE automatically adjusts the timings with the bundled performance straps according to the cards memory type.

The only change I made to the PBE bundled timings is on the RX 580 Nitro+ cards with Samsung memory, I changed the bundled UberMix v3.1 Samsung timing with this one that is much more stable.


I easily get 31 MH/s on Samsung cards with a 1150 MHz core clock and 2150 MHz memory overclock. On Hynix cards I get 32 MH/s with a 1150 MHz core 2250 MHz memory overclock.
18  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Pump and dump? on: June 26, 2018, 10:32:41 PM
How many of you folks have participated in these schemes?

Perhaps I've already shown my hand by calling them schemes.  From a regulatory standpoint, any reputable trade market sanctions against pumping and insider trading.  Certainly we're all aware of why these actions are frowned upon, or criminalized and prosecuted.

I get it, crypto is the wild west; unregulated, unsanctioned, and arguably illegal.  Sure, that's likely to draw out the scumbags, shysters, and generally shady characters.  But, aren't most of us trying to legitimize crypto?  Help bring it to the mainstream?  So why are people introducing pump and dump schemes into the crypto world?  Or, more specifically why are people who're otherwise ethical folks participating in them?

Maybe I'm being a prude, and most of you don't think they're unethical.  So, that's my question; pump and dump: ethical or not?
19  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Mining (Altcoins) / Sapphire Radeon RX 580 recommendations, please on: June 21, 2018, 06:07:55 PM
A question for those who have experience mining ETH with Radeon Cards:

I don't have a lot of experience with AMD chipset cards, but I'm thinking of adding a couple of RX 580s to my ETH machine.  I've narrowed my search down to the Sapphire Pulse, or the Sapphire Nitro+ (8gb cards.)  Which would you choose?  Any recommendations for bios settings and how to flash the bios for a first timer would be really appreciated.
